Arsenal Transfer News: “What a time to be an Arsenal fan”. It is one phrase that keeps reverberating in the minds of every Arsenal fan. What a turnaround! The Gunners have chipped in with complete and clinical performances under the tutelage of Mikel Arteta. The mastermind has totally changed the entire complexion of the team’s approach in the toughest competition. The Gunners find themselves in a rock-solid position as they are at the top of the points table in the first half of the English Premier League.
The table-toppers have lost just one game so far in the season, with their only defeat coming against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Apart from that, they managed to decipher the code and braved the challenges in 16 games. On the other hand, they played out for a draw twice – against Southampton (away) and Newcastle United (home). The first half of the season has already come to a close and it is going to be a huge challenge for the Gunners for the next season.
They haven’t faced Manchester City yet in the competition. It will be quite interesting to see how Arsenal will approach the second half of the season. They recently recruited the services of Italian midfielder Jorginho from Chelsea on a Deadline Day. The deal is said to be worth £12m and the 31-year-old is certain to bring a plethora of experience to the midfield department. It will give Arsenal a much-needed boost in gunning for the fourth Premier League title.
